My baby girl turned 5 months old on Tuesday (9-21-10). I cannot believe how fast she is growing. She will be 1/2 a year old this time next month! Where has the time gone?! I got a few pictures of her. She is very much like her daddy, not to into the camera! I have to get Grandma Jane to help me out to make her laugh and smile for the camera.
What is Brinley up to?!
- She is eating about every 3 hours during the day, anywhere from 4 - 6 ounces.
She gets baby food in the evening. We just started this week, she has had green beans and carrots. She seems to like carrots better, but she will be having something new tomorrow!
She still nurses in the morning before I go to work and in the evening after I get home from work.
She goes to the sitters during the day and plays with her 2 boys! I think we are going to have a tomboy on our hands!
She is neutral about bath time. She would rather lick/suck on the washrag than be in the tub! Haha!
She is sleeping about 8 - 9 hours at night. She goes to bed around 8 or 9 and wakes up around 4 or 5 to eat, and sleeps until 7. She has slept all through the night a handful of times!
She is in size 1-2 diapers. I love the half sizes!
She is wearing size 0-3 and 3 month clothes. I am not ready for it to get cold because we don't have many long sleeve clothes or pants!
She loves to smile and is happy most of the time.
She knows her mommy and daddy!
She likes to look at and reach for Coco and Socks (Socks is Grandma Jane's and Papa Gene's Boxer). Coco still doesn't care to much for her, she moves when Brinley touches her (Coco is a little grumpy sometimes). Socks just can't get enough of her and is very protective of Brinley.
She loves to be on her belly. If you lay her on her back she will flip over faster than you would believe.
She is sitting up, barely on her own! She has to balance herself with her hands. If she picks one up, over she goes!!
She is a scooter, usually backwards. I just know that she is going to crawl anyday now!
- She is reaching for everything and thinks that it should all go in her mouth!
- She loves her toys, especially if they are easy to chew on!
- She has started to make lots of noises. She has a growling sound and a squealing sound, and she thinks both of them are funny.
- She laughs more and more everyday, a true belly laugh! And I LOVE it!
- She loves to be outside, preferably looking up at a tree!!
